hello, i'm new to the forums and was wondering if anybody could tell me how to remove (completely) a virtual machine from virtual pc 2007. in the help section it states "You remove a virtual machine by using the Remove option on Virtual PC Console, and each virtual machine must be removed individually. To be removed, the virtual machine must be closed or in a saved state. When you remove a virtual machine, it is only removed from the list of available virtual machines. The virtual machine files, including the virtual machine configuration (.vmc) file and virtual hard disk (.vhd) file, are not deleted or changed when you remove a virtual machine." microsoft's website dosen't offer anything else (imagine that) nor can i find any info from google. is removing the machine from the console and deleting the .vhd and.vmc files sufficient? where do they reside?

thanks

Deleting the .vmc and .vhd files are sufficient to remove the virtual machine from your computer (though nothing is ever really, really gone for good.)

The files ought to be found in the My Virtual Machines folder in your My Documents (or simply Documents in Vista) folder.
